    Description

    Hi, busy single mum with her own business, who needs a little helping hand also has a 14 year old adventurous son!
    I'm that busy looking after other people's homes our own is left to it's own devices, lots of covid projects unfinished.
    We have a Rottweiler who has a fabulous character and great to be around.
    We like camping, animals, going cliff jumping and just being round the pool. Going for walks and generally being Outside! Obviously some of this I struggle with now
    My son is very active and only really rests when he's asleep!
    We are centally located on the island, close to bus and train terminals.
    We have good sense of humor, sometimes a bit silly.
    My sons a football nut, but also eventually now big enough to take Sunshine to the doggy park, and is teaching him various things.
    What's needed, well there's a bit of sanding down, painting the gates, bit of paint for on the walls, (not much).
    Bit of tidying around the finca, and tidying up the garden, general odd jobs

    Hi, we have many varying needs it could be repairing a fence, or using a jet wash, weeding or organizing the shed.
    Plenty of free time we live in a fab village, 5 m from shops on foot, mountain bike provided if wanting to explore. If you´re over 28 and have a valid EU license, driving could be asked.
    Must be fun outgoing and think independently, if you don't know ask!
    If you can occasionally cook fab especially fish as I´ve never learnt how to cook fish, if not expect an erratic diet, we have no allergies, vegetarians welcome. Obviously mine is plain with the heart problem,
    I am a smoker of cigarettes, only outdoors.
    Would prefer a male as its easier and more fun for my son, must have common sense, and be capable of being asked and left to do something.

    What else ...

    Sense of humor a must, own initiative, self motivated.
    You are not expected to slave away, just generally be an extra pair of hands. You will have plenty of free time, computer and adsl available

    Mallorca is fabulous and especially in the Autunm, sunny days and cooler evenings.

    Better if your an outdoor type, close to country side, mountains and 20 minutes from coast
    Can have no fear what so ever of dogs
